Wendy and the Neckbeards


Written by Kari Bentley-Quinn

Directed by Claire Wilcher



A modern, dark comedy that follows the interconnected stories of body-positive wannabe influencer Wendy, her internet trolls, and the real people behind the awful comments we all read on Instagram in an examination of the current era of internet harassment, toxic masculinity, and the cycle of abuse towards women in America.
